Blocking of Blogger domains...

Its really disheartning to see that the Indian Govt has brought down its axe on the blogs. Just bcoz few of those were not giving out the correct content or the content which the government thought was not in the interest of the country. The govt. may b right about the content but does it mean curbing the right to speech of a commoner. Its basically autocratic means of functioning, where the ruler decides whats right n whats wrong and in this way, the system functions.
For the govt. the list they gave to the ISPs it could have been more specific but no, without any reason, the whole domains were blocked. This basicaly means that somewhere deep down there is a serious fault in the functioning of the system. For a selected few the whole lot is being punished, thats unfair.Basically after the Mumbai serial blasts the govt. has got into action but the way the things are going on its sad. For some reason they are curbing the freedom to speech and dont knw what they hold for us in the future. But the basic fact remains that the intelligence has failed and now no use crying over spilt milk, try to address the basic cause of the problem, the leaks and not the commoner.
I think that the govt. will realize that, by curbing the freedom of speech they are doing nothing much but only hurting the sentiments of ppl more n more. Lets hope for a better tomorrow.God bless all the souls.

I guess all this is really bull man, what are they thinking of doing? banning a few blogs/ips anything will happen, no it wont.. Who doesnt know of proxy today man. But thats not the point. The point is, why does it have to do that. Dont u think there are better things that need to be taken care of than a few blogs. Who checks pornography? Who checks the mms floating all over the words, nothing. No one can do that.. Finally, they have to understand, it comes down to the discretion of the responsible user itslf, and that makes more sence.
